"Love my new cooling products!"

Details: I tried out the cooling vest while hiking and biking. Despite living in New England and it being fall and a bit chilly, I still get overheated with the smallest amount of exertion which makes my vision worse. Having NMOSD is still new to me and I am trying to navigate my way through what my body can tolerate and what it needs help with. I was able to enjoy a nice hike and bike ride on a 60–70-degree day using the Kool Max and Cool58 packs with absolutely no symptoms! Another activity that always makes me overheat is cooking in the kitchen for hours, especially if the oven is on. I am pleased to report I wore my vest to cool thanksgiving dinner and remained symptom free! I am looking forward to wearing these when I return to work under my PPE as I usually overheat at work, going on vacation out west in the heat again (finally!), and being able to grill in the summer and bake cookies this Christmas all without having to worry about symptoms! I am not someone who enjoys ice packs and putting the vest on initially was somewhat tough for me, but now I see it as sidekick that will get me through all the activities I want to do without fluctuations in my vision or strength.
Would you recommend this to a friend?: Absolutely!
